the ones I saw on eBay had asking prices starting at $750 through $1200. Most seemed to be about $900. I don't know if they were selling at those prices, however.

Most GPK superfractors sell in the $350 - $500 range.  Which is certainly a lot for a card, but the insert rate is something like 1 in 10,000 packs.

The Adam Bomb Superfractor sold forthe most at  $5049.

I'm not familiar with the artist, Mr. Potter, I guess he goes by that? It sounds like he worked on Star Wars Wacky sketches or upcoming ANS or Old School. Interesting these sketches will have a chrome border...that's new and different.

Steve Potter has done sketch cards for the last two GPK series. His sketches are some of the better ones I've seen.

I'm tempted to crack open one of those Excell Marketing boxes at Target to see if they got the Chromes early.

With the odds being the same for all cards 1/1, I would say it would come down to popularity such as the Atom Bomb card.

Say, where did you get the group picture of all the forum members? Although, more of us seem to be women than I would have suspected.  ;)

Hello all wacky fans.

This is your first taste of chrome.  GPK fans seem to love them and Star Wars Fans finally got to see a modern day chrome set and it was spectacular.  I hope wacky fans love chrome also.  I hope they do not over produce this set, I have a case coming in!  I had to get in on the first set of WP Chrome.  I think many of the people who say they will not like it will eventually come around.  It does not take away from the art and gives the card a more of a premium feel and look.  I still yet to pull a superfractor and I hope my first one is a wacky!  I am glad Topps is branching out with chrome.  Mars Attack chrome next?  For me chrome is king and is the best set.  I am a chromie and a refractor guy and I am hoping some of you guys will be wacky chromies also! 

What would be the top 5-10 superfractors in this set?

I would be shocked beyond belief. I usually don't see the retail stuff until at least a week following a release

I'm not real sure but I would suppose it would be some favorite titles. I don't know if every card including the ads will be superfractors?

There should be a superfractor for every base card.  Probably not any of the inserts but not 100%.  I read this article.

http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/09/the_25_greatest_wacky_packages_cards.php

Just wondering which would be the best pull?  I guess there is not Adam Bomb type favorite?  Or is there.

Thanks.

I go to a so-called 'City' Target and they get their stuff really late in the game and not usually in much quantity either.
Going to have to troll the suburban Targets!

err, wow. that is one odd list. especially with the inclusions of ANS cards, let alone those '85 cards
I suspect most on here would have a very different looking 'top 25', almost entirely from original 1-8's

I usually find stuff right away at the Targets near me in WI. Maybe I'm closer to the distribution center? I'll be watching for those Excell boxes this weekend!

Previews doesn't list them for next week for hobby, at least not at the moment. So Retail could be 7/23 as previously announced, with hobby the week after
